Another 5 Star Review: Creating Balance

Another 5 Star Review: Creating Balance

Dear Dave,
I have been waiting to write to you about the bed I bought back in October 2015. I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. First, Dewey was great walking me through and helping me pick the layers to best suit my sleeping needs. Second, being a single woman I was amazed at the ease of getting the bed delivered to my front door, me getting the sections upstairs, and assembling it in the bedroom. Third, and most incredible–I am so comfortable! I sleep soundly all night! I am in love with my FloBed! It has exceeded my expectations, my back no longer hurts or aches. I am so happy and grateful.
Thank you,
Margy

FloBeds Family | FloBeds

FloBeds, how this family business found themselves selling beds all across the country!

In 1996, Dave Turner had just patented an idea for a hospital bed that he was sure was going to change the way people slept, rested, and healed forever. But he had two problems: the first was that he had just relocated to Fort Bragg, California-a little town in Northern California on the Mendocino Coast, hours away from any urban hub of industry. The second was that he was the stay-at-home dad for four kids-effectively ruling out any long business trips to trade shows. Hungry to gain traction, Dave decided to take a chance on another revolutionary idea: the World Wide Web. He taught himself how to build a website, and then he waited for the calls to come in. And, sure enough, they did. But not for his hospital beds.
“The first call was from a man in Germany. He wanted a waterbed and wondered if I could ship it to him, and I thought, ‘why not?'” So while every other business of the 90’s was trying to think outside the box, Dave began to figure out how he could adapt his business to fit inside the box.
Twenty years later, Dave’s ingenious FloBed Latex Mattress is so unique that UPS published a case study: “Fitting a Bed in a Box.” And the World Wide Web has done the business well: over $2 million yearly in sales come from FloBeds.com. Despite the fact that they are shipped all over the world, every single FloBed remains handcrafted in Fort Bragg, California, where Dave’s “dream team” works to make sure every customer’s mattress is “Just Right.” Specializing in customization, FloBeds come with personalized levels of firmness for each side of the bed. And the “Goldilocks Guarantee” means that your bed will always be just right-if you need to adjust your firmness, just give the dream team a call.
OrganicNaturalTalalaySelect
FloBeds uses 100% natural Talalay latex, the best material for conforming to and supporting the human body. Their best-selling latex mattress is completely natural, using no harmful chemicals-so you can rest easy.
Morning on the Fort Bragg Coast
The best bed for dreamers. For thinking outside and inside the box. Dreamt up, drawn up, crafted, shipped and adjusted from Fort Bragg, California-where the redwoods meet the Pacific Ocean (oops, a little Fort Bragg Mayor Dave slipped in).

Customer Review

FloBeds customers sleeping on latex, “just enjoy, staying in bed”

Dave,
I remember when the bed arrived. Those boxes are really sturdy and the bed so easily fits inside due to its modular design. I have to tell you, I hung on to those boxes for a while just in case I was going to move but after 10 years I had to let them go to recycling.
My wife Virginia and I love our bed.
We have had it for over ten years and it continues to give us a great night?s sleep, the construction is solid, the support is great and we just enjoy staying in bed.
The only maintenance activity we perform is taking the mattress apart each year and putting it back together. I?m not really sure its recommended but it just seems right!
Thanks for constructing such a great bed.
Best, John W., Carpinteria, CA – 3/16/2016

Dust Mites

   Dust Mitesdustmite

There is nothing more frustrating than having a good night’s sleep ruined by the sneezing, coughing, and wheezing caused by bedroom allergies. Chances are you have thought about replacing that expensive down comforter or throwing out those pillows.   According to the latest research, the house dust mite has been found to be one of the most common causes of asthma and allergies in the bedroom.

WHAT ARE DUST MITES?
Dust mites are microscopic creatures that live by the millions in your bed. Normal beds provides them with the warmth, humidity and food they need for ideal growth and reproduction. It is the allergens produced by the mites, in the form of waste particles, to which allergic people react. It is these particles, when inhaled, that have been shown to induce allergic reactions, aggravate asthma and can exacerbate the symptoms of child eczema.

Wool doesn’t provide dust mites a place to live.  Its dry, porous nature prevents dust mites and other allergens from settling in. Latex is naturally resistant to dust mites.  In addition latex does not provide a hospitable place for dust mites to live.

On the other hand, dust mites like polyurethane foam.  They like it a lot.  It has an open-cell honeycomb structure that provides a perfect apartment complex for mites to live in.  Every time you move on top of polyurethane foam, you compress this sponge like material, as it expands to its original shape, it sucks in dust, old skin, moisture or whatever.  It like a little dust mite city with automatic food delivery.  Most companies use polyurethane foam in their mattresses, especially in pillow-tops.  We don’t use any polyfoam in our better beds.   Instead, we use wool on top of latex.  Naturally better.

Tips for Back, Side and Stomach Sleepers

Back, Side and Stomach Sleepers

Did you know that sleeping posture is just as important as sitting posture? It is very vital that you protect your back while you sleep. You put the least amount of pressure on it by sleeping on your back or side. Side sleepers should sleep with a pillow between their knees to keep proper spine alignment. Stomach sleepers specifically should use a smaller pillow to keep your head aligned while sleeping. When purchasing and customizing your FloBeds mattress make sure you keep in mind that stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress than back or side sleepers.

vZone Layers provide adjustable pressure relief for shoulders and hips and extra lumbar support

If you have more questions please give us a call at 1-800-356-2337 and one of our firmness experts can give you more information on which mattress configuration fits your sleeping position.  Or use our firmness advisor for our natural latex mattress.
